ANNOUNCES TO YOU A GREAT NEWS




FOR AFRO-COLOMBIAN MUSIC










SEXTETO TABALA, the great band from SAN BASILIO DE PALENQUE,




Would be playing live at WOMEX this year







SEXTETO TABALA presents a new release recording live in studio wich was chosen to performing at WOMEX SHOWCASE 2010.?




DATE: OCTOBER 29th - STUDIO 1 10:15 PM COPENHAGEN.




A new rhythm has appeared on the Colombian Atlantic coast, along the Caribbean Sea: the sexteto, an offspring of the Cuban son and the cumbia, the latter, sprung from the triple root of Colombian culture –African, European and indigenous– being already hybrid music itself.




The Sexteto Tabalá originates from Palenque de San Basilio, the famous village which was founded by fugitive slaves some forty-three miles away from Cartagena and one of the main centres of Black resistance to slavery in the 17th and 18th centuries. This sexteto plays a “raw” and warm type of son in which deep, ancient-sounding percussion instruments accompany the tenor voices of Palenque farm workers. These men are heirs to a long identity-building process, from the time of runaway slaves and rebellion against the Spaniards; this is the source from which their interpretation of the “son palenquero” draws its authenticity.
